On all LiveCD for Ubuntu when you first boot into the kernel
on the cd-rom, you have several choices to make. One choice is
to test the cd-rom for defects.
My experience has been that my skin grease can block large
sections of the cd-rom and it stops working. I then wash the
cd-rom with dish soap and warm water. Dry off and run the
cd-rom test. If it passes your good to go.
Also a regular cd-rom with a Ubuntu version on it can also be
checked, and used like a liveCD. So if you are careful you
can fix your own cd-rom's.
